While putting together the seating plan is not one of the planning highlights for lots of couples, figuring out how to display it is a different story! Making up your table plan (once the painful part of deciding who to put where is over) can be lots of fun with so many cute ideas to choose from. Guests are always eager to know where they’re sitting which is why it makes sense to make the table plan a bit of a focal point. There are so many stylish ways to make it stand out and if you’re looking to have fun with a bit of DIY project, there’s plenty of scope for that too. If you’ve a travel theme going on, why not pin your guests names to a map of the world and pop them next to places you’ve visited together. If you can get your hands on an old French style window or shutter, this could be a gorgeous way to display who is sitting where or if you’ve a thing for vintage finds, an antique typewriter could be the perfect prop for displaying your seating chart. The options are endless – from balloons and easels to frames and chalk boards, we’ve rounded up some of the prettiest ways to display your wedding table plan.
Of course, if you don’t have a creative bone in your body but still want something amazing, Irish company Table Plan Designs can come to the rescue and create a masterpiece based on whatever it is you love whether it’s footie, old records or comic books. Or if you’d rather stay classic and timeless, they can do that too (they were the creatives behind Lisa Cannon’s elegant table plan and celeb makeup artist Tara O’Farrell’s chic table plan which you can check out below!). Once you’ve booked the service, all you need to do is send them on all your deets by an agreed time and they’ll have your table plan made up and delivered to your venue in time for your Big Day, no fights with a glue gun necessary!
